Majolica George Morley Napkin Plate
7 1/2" diameter

This is a darling napkin plate by Morley & Company from Liverpool, Ohio. Morley opened his pottery company in 1879.
He was famous for figural napkin plates and his pitchers which depicted parrots and owls.
The napkin plates simulated a folded, usually broad-fringed, napkin placed neatly across a luncheon or dinner plate (as was the Victorian custom). Most of these plates are vividly handsome and a delight to the collector.

The condition of this plate is great considering its age. Remember this plate is from the 1800s and has changed hands many times through the years. On the front of the plate, it has three tiny chips on the rim and a chip on the middle right of the plate in the yellow weave. On the back of the plate, there is a chip.

When I acquire Majolica, I always think about the family who owned the piece and how they lived, who the family was in social status, etc.
